JTA plans long-awaited bus route into Ponte Vedra

Ponte Vedra businesses,
plagued by a increasing
shortage of workers who have
been priced out of homes at
the Beaches, may see some
relief in upcoming months.
The Jacksonville
Transportation Authority

(JTA) plans to start a bus
route down Third Street into
Ponte Vedra Beach, and the
route could be in place as
early as the end of the sum-
'Fred Haley, service plan-
ning manager for the JTA,
confirmed Thursday in a tele-
phone interview that plans
are under way to develop a

bus route that will link down-
town Jacksonville, the
Jacksonville Beaches commu-
nities and and Ponte Vedra.
"The main goal is to bring
workers to the Beach and
Ponte Vedra," Haley said,
who noted that several issues
have to be worked out before
bus service begins.
"We do not have permis-

sion to go into the [St. Johns]
county yet," safd Haley. "We
will also have to work with
Sunshine Bus Company [the
bus service that runs in St.
Johns County] to check on
their routes."

Pavel "Paul" Ostapenko (left, holding boys) and members of his family, who are from the Ukraine and now live in
St. Johns County, enjoy the beach at Mickler's Wednesday. Ostapenko said some of the family had felt rip cur-
rents, which are predicted to be especially strong this summer.

Damage from winter storms brings

'powermfur rip tides for the summer

Memorial Day weekend will
likely bring throngs of people to
the Beach, but lifeguards urge
patrons to use caution because
beach conditions are more
severe than usual this season.
Riptides and currents are
"stronger" and "more powerful"
this year than they have been
for the last two years, according
to' Jacksonville Beach Lifeguard
Lt. Matt Duffy.
Lifeguards are prepared for the
conditions and will be working
full time beginning this week-
end through Labor Day.
Jacksonville Beach lifeguards
had to pull out several people
from the water last weekend,
and Neptune Beach City
Manager Jim Jarboe confirmed
that Neptune Beach also experi-
enced worsened water condi-
Several northeasters through-
out the winter have carved deep
sloughs in the beach, which fill
with water, causing bad runouts,
according to Duffy.
Duffy anticipates that the
poor conditions will continue
throughout the summer.

Duffy cautions that there are
certain periods when the water
is more unsafe specifically,
just after high tide when
beachgoers should be more cau-

patrol the beach and make nec-

ask questions if you are unsure
of something.
"We're trying to be preventa-

Duffy said.

Director David Thompson
emphasized that lifeguards can
often see things that beach
patrons cannot which is why it

Construction has begun on a dune walkover at San Diego Road in Ponte Vedra Beach
(above), one of 24 such structures being added in St. Johns County over three years.

Nease makes


top 100 list
Good news came to Nease High School
twice this week: FCAT reading and math
scores are the best among the county's
high schools, and Nease made
Newsweek's list of top 100 public high
The latter puts Nease in the company
of two magnet high schools in
Jacksonville Stanton College Prep and
Paxon School for Advanced Studies -
which have been in the top 100 since at
least 2005.
The magazine's rankings are based on
a ratio of the number of students taking
advanced subject tests divided by the
number of graduating seniors.
The tests are for Advanced Placement
or International Baccalaureate courses,
or a combination of both. High scores
on either of those tests can give students
college credits and are considered an
indicator of likely success in college.
"I am extremely proud of our teachers
and counselors, who encouraged the stu-
dents to take challenging courses;"
Nease Principal Linda Thomson said in
an e-mail message Wednesday.

in AP or IB, there was a dramatic increase
in those who pass at least one test," she

New PV dune walkover

part of $400,000 project
A dune walkover being constructed at San Diego Road and Ponte
Vedra Boulevard is expected to be ready in two to three weeks, bringing
to four the number of such walkovers from the Duval County line to
Mickler beach access.
Five or six wooden walkovers have been added to the county's inven-
tory since Oct. 1, said Wil Smith with the St. Johns County Parks and
Recreation Department.
Another two or three are expected to be built by the end of the fiscal
year Sept. 30. The structures are part of a three-year, $400,000 project
to build 24 walkovers along the county's 42 miles of coast, Smith said.
Half of that total is from the county's coffers and the other half is from
a state recreation development grant, Smith said.
"When we build the walkovers, it gives the dunes a chance to revege-
tate," said Smith. "The walkovers also give the beach a little relief from
erosion. This is what the state wants to see," he added.
The county's Web site lists 170 access points that vary from pedestrian
foot paths to ramps for vehicle access to the beach. The vast majority are
foot paths in Ponte Vedra and South Ponte Vedra, with street ends begin-
ning north of Vilano Beach and vehicle access further south.
Smith said public meetings will be held before the county's beach serv-
ices division determines where the next walkovers should be built.

Bus: JTA hasn't been OK'd to enter St. Johns Co.

Continued from A-1
will pay a fare to be determined by JTA.
Haley said it will likely be between 75
cents and $1.35.
A grant expected from the Florida
Department of Transportation will pay a
portion of the cost of adding the route,
Haley said. Matching funds may come
from either St. Johns County or JTA, he
"That is something we are still doing
our homework on," said Haley. "Those
costs will have to be negotiated."
Jeffrey Oliasami, hotel manager for
the Sawgrass Marriott Resort & Spa in
Ponte Vedra, said Thursday he is pleased
with the idea of the bus route, which he
has promoted for several years.
Oliasami, former president of the
Ponte Vedra Beach Chamber of
Commerce, has said that bus runs could
help fill some of the jobs at the Marriott
and other businesses in Ponte Vedra.
In recent years, apartment buildings,
trailer parks and other lower-cost hous-
ing has been lost at the Beaches, where
demand has increased development and
prices. With no direct, low-cost way to

get to Ponte Vedra Beach from
Jacksonville, many jobs have gone beg-
Oliasami said escalating gas prices,
which have quickly moved beyond $3 a
gallon in recent weeks, also point to the
need for a bus route south of the Duval
County line.
"We have known for the past three or
four years that a bus route is needed,"
Oliasami said. "From the Chamber's
view point, this is a good thing."
Oliasami also said that bus routes
could help the elderly, who may not
have dependable transportation to get
medical care or basic necessities. In
addition, he said, public transportation
could relieve some of the traffic conges-
tion on State Road A1A.
In May 2006, Oliasami, business lead-
ers in Ponte Vedra and leaders from the
three Beaches municipalities met with
JTA officials to determine if a bus route
in Ponte Vedra was feasible.
JTA officials said it could take up to a
couple of years to implement a bus
route because the agency was working
on route reconstruction.

Bus routes are determined by conduct-
ing a detailed review of the current sys-
tem and identifying trends and changes
in the census data of a particular area,
Steve Arrington, JTA's director of strate-
gic planning, said at last year's meeting.
A survey of Ponte Vedra Beach
employers to gauge ridership was
announced at that meeting, and
Oliasami said the results of that survey
will be used to determine where the
stops should be placed along the bus
A bus route that ran through Ponte
Vedra to Target and the SandCastle
Shopping Center was discontinued
about a year ago, Haley said.
A meeting with officials from Ponte
Vedra, the Jacksonville Beaches munici-
palities and JTA to further discuss the
bus routes was scheduled to be held last
Haley said there is no timetable on the
routes, which have not been determined
yet by JTA officials. Haley said there is
still considerable work to be done before
the first bus enters the county.


The Rhoda L. Martin
Cultural Heritage Museum
is expected to open June
22, according to Walter
Bell, president of the
Jacksonville Beach
Elementary Preservation
Society. The building, a
portion of the origininal
Jacksonville Beach
Elementary which served
the African-American com-
munity, is at 4th Avenue
and 4th Street South.


Nease: FCAT reading, math top district averages

Continued from A-1
rankings, which can be
viewed at
5708 7/site/newsweek/from/E
Twenty-two public high
schools in Florida made the
top 100, followed by New
York with 13, Texas with 12
and Virginia with 11.
Stanton, a magnet school
for academics, is ranked No. 3,
up from its Nov.- 5 spot last

year and back to the ranking
it had in 2005.
Paxon is 15 on the latest
list, up from. 28 in 2006. In
2005, Paxon was ranked No.
At spot No. 78 this year,
Nease moved up from 144 last
year and 493 the year before.
This year's reading and
math scores on the Florida
Comprehensive Assessment
Test (FCAT) show Nease had
the highest percentage pass-

ing among the St. Johns
County School District's four
major high schools.
At Nease, 70 percent of
ninth graders and 58 percent
of 10th graders scored three or
more in reading, compared
with a district average of 58
percent of ninth graders and
49 percent of 10th graders.
On the math test, 86 per-
cent of Nease ninth graders
scored three or more, com-
pared with an average of 74

percent in the district.
* At the 10th grade level, 86
percent at Nease scored three
or more. in math, compared
- with 80 percent in the district.
On the writing test, whose
results were released earlier,
89 percent of Nease's 10th
graders'scored three or more,
compared with the district's
average of 85 percent. Bartram
Trail was slightly ahead of
Nease, with 90 percent scor-
ing three or more on writing.

In addition, a traffic light at
3rd Street and Ponte Vedra
Boulevard will be moved one
-block south next year when the
two medians are closed.
Some community opposition
is expected, according to Chris
LeDew, traffic operations engi-
neer with the state Department
of Transportation. He said work
to close the 3rd Street median
openings at Pablo Avenue 'and
36th Avenue South is tentative-
ly.scheduled to begin July, 2008.
The projects may take up to a
year to complete, he said. "I
don't know when during that
year the medians will close,"
Ledew said. "It may be summer
of 2009 when it finishes."
A public hearing will be held
at 4 p.m. July 12 at Jacksonville
Beach City Hall, 11 3rd Street N.
LeDew said some residents
will be opposed to the changes
because they will alter the exist-
ing traffic pattern.
"The people will no longer
have direct access to the signal
that they enjoy today so that is
a slight negative impact,"
LeDew said. "They can still
make a right turn out of 36th

[Avenue South]."
The traffic light at Ponte
Vedra Bouelvard and 3rd street
will be removed and installed
one block to the south.
"That is being done because
of a big crash problem [in the
area] because the signal at 36th
Avenue South is so close,"
Ledew said. "It is not that safe to
have two signals that close' to
each other. This is being done
for safety reasons."
The median opening will be
replaced with a permanent con-
crete separator.
Some residents living near the
36th Avenue South intersection
said the changes will make a bad
situation even worse.
"It doesn't make any sense,"
resident Sam Veal said. "It is
going to adversely affect more
people than if you just left it
Veal said the change Vill
cause traffic to bottleneck
because motorists in the neigh-
borhood east of 3rd Street will
no longer be able to cross the
road and go southbound on 3rd
Street at 36th Avenue South.
Residential traffic at 36th
Avenue South will have to go to
Ocean Drive to get to 37th
Avenue South to go west or
Veal, who lives in the area,
predicted there there will be
backups on Ponte Vedra
Boulevard at 3rd Street.

The signs announcing median closures have been knocked flat
for more than a week. This sign is in the median at 3rd Street
and Pablo Avenue in Jacksonville Beach.

"That is more traffic than this
can already handle on Ponte
Vedra Boulevard or it backs up,"
he said. "They can't get by to go
north because there is only one
Those on the west side of 3rd
Street seeking to go northbound
at 36th Avenue South will also
encounter problems, Veal said,
explaining that funeral proces-
sions from a funeral home at
36th Avenue South will have to
make u-turns to go northbound.
LeDew said an access road will
be built running north and
south to connect 36th Avenue
South with Jacksonville Drive

and provide through access to
to the new signal.
Related improvements in the
area will include a new traffic
light to be installed at Osceola
Avenue. Also, an existing signal
at 22nd Avenue South will be
removed as it is too close to
another signal one block away.
At Pablo Avenue, LeDew said
a study conducted of the area
determined that the intersec-
tion at Beach and AlA was too
close to the unsignalized medi-
an opening one block north. A
concrete separator will also be
installed in that area.

The Leader's Opinion

Homeless woes

merit attention

All present at last week's meeting on homeless at the
Beaches agreed there are problems.
That was where the unanimity ended, however.
Jacksonville Beach City Councilor Pete Mittleman,
who called the meeting of citizens, social agencies and
government representatives, drew kudos from some in
the audience for organizing the effort. He deserved
them as he kept a tempestuous audience focused while
divisive issues were aired.
Several speakers pointed out, correctly, that there are
various types of homeless problems at the Beaches and
one solution will not fit all. As one speaker succinctly
noted, the "pains in the butt" are different from the
ones who genuinely need a helping hand.
Several suggestions were made with many requiring
significant investments of time and resources.
The issues have been aired and suggestions tendered.
The next step will be agreeing on what courses of action
should be pursued and moving forward.
Ignoring the problem will not solve it. Neither will
simply throwing more resources at the problem with no
The work began last week, but there are many hard
decisions facing the community. There is much at stake
here including public safety, police said, and the prob-
lem deserves focused attention.

Jax council actions are

To the editor:
I would like to give major
kudos to Atlantic Beach Mayor
Don Wolfson for taking the
time to write his article in The

ly endorse his approach in
dealing with the Jacksonville
City Council. Clearly, their
recent actions were a slap in
the face to all Beaches resi-
Now is the time for the three
mayors of Jacksonville Beach,
Neptune Beach and Atlantic
Beach to vigorously lobby
Mayor Peyton in hopes that he
will wisely veto this foolish
piece of legislation.
While others may argue that

this is nothing more than a
simple case of private property
rights I would hope these indi-
viduals would consider the
devastating impact this project
would do to all three beaches

crossroads with our relation-

Three lessons for life and some

innovations that changed our lives

(Captain Aaron Bowman, exec-
utive officer for Naval Station
Mayport, presented the following
commencement speech to fifth
graders at Jacksonville Beach
Elementary School earlier this
week.) *
F irst of all, thank you for
inviting me to be a part of
such an exciting day in all
of your lives. I can't think of
anywhere I would rather be.
To Principal Leinhauser and the
Jacksonville Beach Faculty, your
excitement and enthusiasm in
education is exhibited by the
pride this school has and by its
performance when compared
against other schools. It's truly
remarkable that you set the
standards for the entire state of
To the parents in the back,
think about when you finished
fifth grade there was the
thrill of getting off for the sum-
mer but also the unknown of
what it would be like at Middle
School. This school has one of
the most active PTAs in,the area
and the special attention you
give your children at home are
an, equal part of this school's
success. And most of all, to the.
5th graders in front of me, you
have just completed a remark-
able first step in your personal
education-I hope you all agree
with me that not only is school
fun but also what you have
learned here will benefit you for
the resf of your life.
What I'm going to tell you
now may shock you a little. I
still go to school...... Two
months ago I was in
Washington, DC attending a
three week course. Last year I
spent about three weeks in dif-
ferent schools, a few years
before I took a 14-weelk class in
Washington, DC, and then of
course I also went to college,
went to school for a Masters
degree, and spent two years
going through Navy Flight
School. The day that I stop
wanting to go to new schools is

. --


when life will become boring --
I hope that day never comes.
I want to spend a little time
today on taking you back when
I finished 5th grade. In some
ways it seems like yesterday and
in others, I wonder where all
the time went. Here are some of
the things that happened in the
year I was in fifth grade hope-
fully you will recognize some ot
them. My point in sharing thus
is that some of these things on
the list were brand new back
then, as new as the Wii or
Nintendo DS is to you, but the
world never stops and if you
want to be a part of it, educa-
tion is the way to influence the
next generation.
Things that happened when I
was in 5th Grade
1) (Who has a cell
Phone?) The first handheld
Cellular phone call was made.
2) (Everyone remember
the World Trade Center in New
York City?) It Officially Opened
3) (Who plays Baseball?)
First designated hitter went to
bat for the American League
4) (Who has used Federal
Express to mail Packages?)
FEDEX started operations by
delivering 186 packages
5) (Who likes Space
Travel?) The precursor to the
Space Shuttle, SKYLAB was
launched as the United States
first Space Station

6) (Who uses an
Automatic Teller Machine
(ATM)?) It was invented this
Any guesses on what the year
was? 1973 34 years ago.
The important point of the
six things I listed was that at the
time, only three of them
received any recognition (World
Trade Center, Designated hitter,
and SKYLAB). Yet, who can
imagine life today without cell
phones, ATMs, or FEDEX deliv-
ering packages around the
world. Energetic young people
like you took Cell Phones,
ATMs, and FEDEX and. made
them what they are today.
What will each of you do to
change our future?
I want to close by leaving you
with three thoughts that I hope
will guide you through school
and the rest of your life...
#1) Never pursue anything
unless you are giving it your
absolute best. If you aren't try-
ihgiybuf Miardest ybu 4ie6Wasti
N ig: ygur own 'timtei*as well' Is
everyone else who is involved
in the activity.
#2) Go out of your way to
help others and don't be afraid
to ask for help yourself.
#4) Don't ever stop learning.
If you don't know why or how
something works, ask questions
or research the answer. You
may find a better way!
Today is one of the most
important days of your life. You
all have made it through six
years of elementary school start-
ing as wee kindergarteners
when you were just learning to
read to now being eligible for
instant stardom on the hit tele-
vision show "Are you smarter
than a 5th Grader."
I want to .wish you a fun and
safe summer but more impor-
tantly I want to wish you the
best success in your future edu-
cation in middle school, high
school, and beyond.
Thank you for letting me be a
part of this special day.

I missed thanking Mom for advice

It was my first Mother's Day
without my mother. No
more cards to send, no
flowers, no calls to make.
Actually, I hadn't spoken with
my mother for a decade.
Talked to her, yes, but no ver-
bal interaction had taken
place because she was existing
in another world -
Distance also kept us apart -
she lived in Europe but thou-
sands of miles separating us
were less of an obstacle than the
state of her mind. Flying to
Germany and visiting her in the
nursing home that had become
her final residence was emo-
tionally stressful.
My husband and I usually sat
at her bedside and told her sto-
ries about her grandchildren
(our two sons) and their fami-
lies. There was no reaction nor
signs of comprehension on her
part, but we tried.
Compounding the problem was
the loss of her eyesight due to
Macular Degeneration.
One day, sitting in that
immaculate room that my
mother shared with another
patient, I held her hand and
tried to recall special moments
we shared that were memorable
and had an impact on my life.
What came to mind was a bit of


advice she gave me.
I was about 14 when Mom
said to me, "Doris, it's about
time you do something about
your skin. Your face is like a pair
of shoes." That hurt. But then
she continued, "Leather shoes
need cream to keep them supple
and polished, and so does your
skin need nourishment to keep
it moist and smooth, both day
and night." And that advice
started me on my lifelong habit
of taking care of my face with-
out ever changing the product
or routine.
For more than 50 years I fol-
lowed the same daily ritual.
Every morning after my shower

I applied moisturizing creme to
my face and neck before putting
on lipstick, mascara, and eye-
brow pencil. Often I added
more creme during the day
when my skin felt dry again.
Though it made my face shine
like a lantern, it felt good.
Each evening, before going to
bed, I cleaned my face with cold
creme to remove all traces of
make-up, then reapplied the
same cleanser and kept it on
throughout the night. My hus-
band wasn't always happy
about that but eventually got
used to seeing me looking like a
shiny beacon.
I still get compliments about
my skin and about not having
too pTany wrinkles for my age. I
just smile and say "Thank you."
I also say thanks to Pofids, the
company who created such a
wonderful product. And the
best part of it is that all these
years I never spent more than
$5 for a four-ounce jar, a bar-
gain of all bargains.
But most of the credit goes to
my mother. I am ashamed that
I never even bothered to thank
her for the best advice she ever
gave me. I just hope she knows
that I am grateful wherever
she is.

Beach resident.



No sissy

names for


several years ago in one
of my very first
columns, I took on the
boys from the National
Hurricane Center for the
names they assign to
storms. Hurricanes aren't
nice and they shouldn't
have nice names. At that
time I suggested they use
the mean sounding names
of my good friend Elvin and
his girlfriend Sissy's hunting
dogs. Half were girl names
and half were boys.
Obviously they didn't think
Buckshot, Decoy, Gunner,
Poacher, Reload and Sport
were good enough and now
look what's happened. I
hate saying I told you so!
But Dad Gummit I did!
Now a perfectly good
name is being rejected by
parents as a baby name
because it was used on a
nasty Hurricane. I tried to
tell them, but did they lis-
ten? Katrina has dropped
from a top 100 name in. the
80s to number 382 today.
This wouldn't have hap-
pened if the National
Hurricane Center gave
storms mean sounding
names in the first place. So
they didn't like hunting
dogs, then let's go with
tyrants from history and
-HIHlly'wood, 'im talking
i:me.sthat put, the fear of
God in you!
The first storm this year
was Andrea. A better name
would have been Attila!
Sorry, but subtropical storm
or not, I'm packing my bags
for that one. And instead of
Barry for the second storm,
how about Boris? That's
another attention getter!
Let's cut to the chase
here! I think we should
throw out that rule about
boy-girl names rotating
equally. Just give them
mean names without regard
to gender. Besides prior to
1979 every Hurricane had a
girl's name. Looks to me
like manly men have some
catching up to do.
Chantal is the third
storm of the season. That
sounds more like a contest-
ant on American Idol than a
Hurricane. You should be
text messaging votes when
you hear that name, not
evacuating. I would have
chosen Cruella for the "C"
Dean is the fourth storm.
Again that's a nice name,
but not intimidating
enough! So why not name
the "D" storm after the son
of the great intimidator? I
think Hurricane Dale Junior
would definitely raise a red
flag! Or would it be check-
Edgar Allen would be a
great name for the fifth
storm of the year. I like
Fanny for the next one!
That name has "let's batten
down the hatches" written
all over it.
Most of the feminine
names being used this year
look like they belong in a
Barry Manilow song, not on
a Weather Channel alert.
There is one appropriate
name planned for a 2007
Hurricane and that's Tanya,
as long as you add Harding
to it.
"Start packing and watch
out for your knee caps!"
Just a reminder to stay
safe this Hurricane season.
No matter what their
named, they can be bad
news. Wonder which one
of Elvin and Sissy's hunting
dogs are girls. Could it be
Buckshot, Poacher? It bet-
ter not be Sport, or my
Grand Pa's old Hound is
spinning in his grave. It's
gotta be Reload, naaaah!
Maybe Gunner? Here
Gunner, here girl! Naaaaah!

some residents have complained about speeding cars.
Police Chief David Sembach conducted a traffic study in the
1700 block of Indian Woods Drive and determined that speed
humps were not necessary, he told the Council on Monday.
However, the Council discussed the possibility of adding
speed humps near the Kings Road Bridge area.
While police are not finding a problem, residents in the area
have complained that there is one.
Councilor Fred Lee said that he would meet with residents
to further discuss their issues.

Race to fight breast cancer

expected to fill area's hotel

rooms, JB council told

A television news personality is racing ahead
with plans to cosponsor a national marathon
at the Beaches to support breast cancer and
raise money to fight the deadly disease.
Donna Hicken, local news anchor and two-
time breast cancer survivor, Monday urged the
Jacksonville Beach City Council to support the
"26.2 with Donna" marathon in February,
"We are just so excited about it," she said. "I
am a runner on these Beaches. I live in
Jacksonville Beach. This is my home. I love it."
The City Council approved a special events
application to allow the 26.2-mile marathon to
take off.
As founder of the Donna Hicken Foundation
which provides resources for victims of breast
cancer, Hicken said she has always raised
money by running.
She partnered with trainer Jeff Galloway and
the Mayo Clinic to help cultivate the race into
a signature event for the Beaches as well as the
tight-knit community of cancer survivors and
those still battling the disease.
"We thought why train people to run other
people's races? Why not bring them to my own
community?" she said. "What a wonderful
thing to expose people to and raise money for
cancer research."
Hicken said the money raised will be filtered
directly to the Mayo Clinic rather thari being
"dumped into a vast hole" where there is no
real way to ensure that they will benefit the
"Edith Perez is one of the top breast cancer
researchers in the world. People come to the
Mayo from all over the country to see her,"
Hicken said., We will take our funds and direct
them to top bench research right here in our
own community."
Perez is author of a clinical trail that pro-
duced a 52 percent decrease in the recurrence

of breast cancer in those
;. participating.
The race is also expect-
ed to promote a huge
1.5 economic boom for the
Beaches at a time when
tourism is notoriously
slow in the winter
s months.
Hicken "Not only does it bene-
fit a great cause but it fills
up hotels and restaurants
in February when it is usually the doldrums
around here," Mayor Fland Sharp said. "We are
all excited."
Hicken, who is married to TV 13 meteorolo-
gist Tim Deegan, said she used her "in" at the
weather department to schedule a date for the
marathon that would coincide with the pro-
jected low tide.
"We are just hoping not to have a northeast-
er that day," she said.
Hicken said she hopes that the marathon
will be aired live on local television "so people
can see what we are doing here."
"We will be promoting this all over the
world in Florida, across the United States
and overseas," she said. "We want to create a
marquee event that people can point to. This is
an untapped gold mine for breast cancer
Hicken said she will continue to work with
area businesses and residents along the
marathon route to minimize any inconven-
iences or, race day."
The inaugural run of the 26.2 with Donna:
The National Marathon to Fight Breast Cancer
will be held February 15-17, 2008 in
Jacksonville Beach. It will include a health
expo, community celebration event, VIP
event, marathon, half marathon and fun-run.
Organizers have said they expect hundreds
of runners for the race. For information visit

He also told the Council

Isle of Faith prepares for Dominican Republic medical mission
Isle of Faith prepares for Dominican, Republic medical mission

Individuals volunteering
with Isle of Faith's
Dominican Republic Medical
Mission are "asked to be flexi-
ble like Gumby," said Deb
White, a volunteer leader for
the church's mission.
Even though the group
works together for almost a
year to prepare the mission,
unexpected things happen
and the living conditions are
always a challenge, she said.
White has participated in
seven mission trips and will
be going with the group of
eight people from Isle of Faith
United Methodist Church this
year. They will be working in
Moca/Tamboril near the city
of Santiago for two weeks in
The medical mission is affil-
iated with the Christian non-
profit* organization Medical
Mission International. MMI
brings medical professionals
and support volunteers to
impoverished areas to pro-
vide medical care for those in
About 90 volunteers are
expected at Moca/Tamboril,
including 6-8 physicians, sever-
al nurses, and a dentist, said

White. The rest of the
volunteers provide
administrative sup-
port for the health
providers, act as trans-
lators, and work with
the local population
and provide children's
It is not unusual to
have 150 people wait-
ing to be placed on
the list for medical
care early on the first
morning of the mis-
sion, said White. The
people are so grateful
for everything, she
At the top of the list
of what members of
the team should bring
on the mission trip is
an "open heart and
open mind and the
willingness to use our Jim Wl
talents that God has Isle of F
provided each of us
with," said White.
On the practical side, White
,provides the volunteers with a
comprehensive six-page list of
what to pack.
Three of the most impor-
tant items on the list are bot-
tles of hand sanitzer, a refill-
able water bottle, and insect
repellant, she said.

Faith United Methodist Church's Dominican Republic Medical Mission

Living conditions are basic
and it is necessary to sleep
under mosquito nets.
MMI has drinking water
brought in by truck and every-
one is cautioned to only drink
that water. Regular use of
hand sanitizers is encouraged.
Even a shower at the end of

day is at times an unavailable
luxury. Power is controlled by
the government and when it
is turned off for part of every
day there is no running water,
said White's husband1 who is
also a volunteer leader going
on this mission trip.
The evening before the mis-

sion team leaves for the
Dominican Republic,
everyone will meet at
the Whites' home for
b "packing night."
Two suitcases weigh-
ing 50 pounds each
when packed, are
allowed per person.
Each volunteer's first
suitcase is filled with
their personal items
including bedding.
The second bag is
filled with items needed
for the mission that
have been donated or
that they have pur-
chased. These include
.... medical supplies, vita-
mins, baby items, and
: other incidentals that
will help the
4-',34 Dominican people.
COLETTI This year, the team
with plans to leave at 3:30
a.m. for the first part of
the flight to the
Dominican Republic.
White, who is going on her
eighth mission trip, said the
mission team has been strand-
ed at an airport in the U.S. on
all but one mission trip.
Airfare, mission fees, and
incidental costs add up to
about $2,000 per person.
The goal is to raise funds to

cover the cost of the trip for
every person who is going,
she said.
Since the fall, they have
raised funds at a craft show,
an art show, bake sales, yard
sales, Christmas events, a
silent auction, and in a
fundraising partnership with
Moe's Restaurant.
All of the effort that goes
into fundraising also helps to
bring the volunteers together
as a group, said White.
Everyone learns to work
together and this helps in
assigning duties for the volun-
teers once they are in the
Dominican Republic.
Many of those who have
volunteered in medical mis-
sions in past years choose to
do so again, said Deb White.
This year, four members of
the team are returning after
serving in previous years.
They are nurses Pam Beaton
and Tami Kippler and Stanton
College Prep students Paige
White and Amber Sienna.
Two people are joining the
mission team for the first
time. They are Johnathan
Bedenbaugh who is a
construction supervisor and
Dylan Parvin, a student at
Fletcher Senior High.

of baseball

Let's face it, records are
meant to be broken. So
when someone nears
breaking one, why should it
be ignored?
So we won't see a Triple
Crown winner this year for
the horses (there's yet to be a
Triple Crown winner since my
birth), we will see one of base-
ball's most famous records
No, it's not the record that
Atlanta Braves skipper Bobby
Cox is about to set, becoming
the most ejected manager in
Major League history, though
that is an interesting one.
The guy has nearly a full
season of ejections under his
belt in his career, yet he's still
one of the top winning man-
agers in history as well.'
But enough of Bobby Cox.
This column is about Barry
Bonds. This column is about
the guy who, despite all that
steroids talk in the past (up
until yesterday at least), is
going to be baseball's all-time
home run king before we
know it.
And ho one will be there lto'

Former MLB commissioner
Fay Vincent has asked current
commish Bud Selig to avoid
honoring Bonds with his pres-
ence at games as Bonds nears
Hank Aaron's 32 year-old
On top of that, Aaron, the
man whose record is about to
fall, already has said he will
not be in attendance to see
Bonds hit that historic blast.
This is the guy who spent
23 years chasing Babe Ruth's
record but doesn't have the
decency to at least extend a
hand as his own record falls.
Hammerin' Hank says he'd
rather go golfing.
Don't you think Roger
Maris would've made it a
point to go see Mark McGwire
smack that famous No. 62
back in 1998 if he were still
That whole circus baseball

for weeks.
Bonds is about to pass the
one record that means more
to baseball than the slider and
no one plans to show up.
It is not proven that Bonds
is a user and we are in a coun-
try where people are innocent
until proven guilty. Besides,
steroids don't improve your
bat-to ball hand-eye coordina-
tion. If they did, don't you
think I'd be playing baseball
right now for a small fortune?
For Aaron and Selig and all
others to bury their heads in
the sand as Bonds nears this
historic accomplishment
would be a bad move for
What major league baseball
has is a commissioner who is
a friend of Aaron's. So natu-
rally, Selig is taking Hank's
side and has indicated he
doesn't want to be in atten-
dance for homers number 755
to tie the record and 756 to
break it.
People are supposed to
leave that personal stuff at
home, not bring it to the
field, especially when you run
the league.
The friendship between
Aaron and Selig doesn't mat-
ter at this point. It's the
respect the sport owes to one
of its best-ever players that
will really count.

When Lee Geiger took over the head
baseball coaching job at Nease High
School, he knew right then and there
he had his work cut out for him.
After all, the program was just a few
years removed from its Florida High
School Athletic Association violations
when the baseball team was practicing
earlier than it was supposed to, and
following the additional probation
because of the football program's
infractions, every sport at Nease has
become heavily scrutinized.
It didn't help that the school's foot-
ball program has gained state-wide
recognition over the past few years
while the baseball team returned very
few experienced players for the start of
the 2007 season. .
The dynamic seemed to be: Nease
football on the rise, Nease baseball in
decline, although the program was just
two seasons removed from reaching
the regional finals of the state playoffs.
But now Geiger has resigned and the
baseball team is in search of its third
head coach in three years.
This spring, the Panthers got off to a
rough start. The team opened the sea-
son 0-9, making "inexperience mis-
takes," as Geiger put it and "not get-
ting those big innings," he would add.

"It's been a growing process for all of
us," Geiger said of the nine straight
losses. "We knew it would be."
Then came the March 16 win
against Menendez High School and
two more wins the
following week at the
Terry Parker High ..................................
School Tournament
and things started to It just was
"Once we got the situation fc
first win against Hopefully b'
Menendez, we've
been playing some June we ca
decent baseball," situation be
Geiger said at the
time. "It's just nice get someone
seeing the kids have time for c
confidence and
believing in them- and for the
selves." school year
Geiger knew the
team he had taken
over this season was
a team in the midst Ted i
of rebuilding for the Nease athh
future. He had only a
handful of seniors to
work with and
numerous players who didn't have
much. experience under their belt.
By midseason, Geiger's Panthers had
a different look and started winning
more games, including a three-game




win streak at the beginning of April in
which the Panthers scored over 10
runs in all three wins. Nease capped
the season winning four of its last six
games and finishing with a record of
9-18, far better than
Geiger had expected at

always upbeat," the

nditioning The season ended
after a 10-3 loss to Port
tart of the Orange Atlantic High
School in the first
round of the district
tournament and Geiger
was already thinking in
arbato terms of the next sea-
fc director son.
The Panthers would
not lose that many
players to graduation
and the coaches and players were start-
ing to connect as the season wore on,
things that foretold of a better future
for Nease baseball.
"The majority of our team does

return, so the future looks bright,"
Geiger said following the season. "We
just have to get back to work and work

Then, Geiger resigned from his posi-
tion after just one campaign as head
"It just wasn't the right situation for
him," Nease Athletic Director Ted
Barbato said.
While Geiger has departed from the
school, Barbato is already on the
move, looking to replace the head
coach, which he hopes to do by the
end of June.
"We're already taking applications
and holding some interviews," Barbato
"Hopefully by the end of June we
can have this situation behind us and
get someone in here in time for condi-
tioning and for the start of the school
Despite the program not being .the
best interest for Geiger, Barbato has no
hard feeling toward the former coach.
"I really appreciated him being here
this year," Barbato said. "He did a
good job and he worked real well with
the kids. We wish him the best."

Highsmith tournament this Saturday

Memorial Day weekend will
usher in the summer beach
volleyball season and its open-
ing event, the 10th annual
Highsmith Memorial Tourna-
ment taking place Saturday on
the beachfront at Fourth Ave:
N in Jacksonville Beach.
The event honors Mike
Highsmith, a surfer turned top
beach volleyball player who
perished at the age of 31 after
a Colorado dirt bike accident.
"I am still in awe that
Michael's tournament is still
running [this many] years
later," Renee Highsmith
Chiarello said last year. "You

A number of Highsmith's
contemporaries will compete
in this weekend's event. That
circle of friends, including
Wayne MacDonald, who.was
with Michael when he died,
Rocky Morsch, Scott Guthrie,
Damon Gordon, Matt Tracy
and Brad Brown, all became
well-known beach volleyball
"We grew up together, pretty
much lived together," Morsch
said before last year's event.
"Mike and Wayne, Scott [and]
myself were the only guys who
made a profession out of vol-
leyball. It was tough, especially
starting.out. Money wasn't
great because we were on the
lower end.
"As the years went on we
got better and the money got
better. It was nice seeing the
four of us work our way up
through the ranks. Mike was
one of the top players on the
East Coast."
Highsmith's family plans to
host a party for those who
knew the late volleyball.icon.
"It's just unbelievable these
guys still want to get together
just to honor their buddy,"
Highsmith's mother, Francine

'Bicycle maneuver' is the best

exercise for firming mi ecion

q question: Dr. Smith,
what are the best exer-
cises to firm up my

Answer: A recent study
sponsored by the American
Council on Exercise reports
for best results you should use
the bicycle maneuver, where
you perform a crunch by
touching your knees to your
opposite elbows.
This is not the easiest thing
to do if you are just starting
The other exercises to try is
the exercise-ball crunch, in
which you lie back on the
ball, thighs and torso parallel
with the floor, and raise your
torso no more than 45
The council's web site (ace-
fitness.org) contains instruc-
tions on how to correctly per-
form these as well as other
abdominal exercises, or you
should have a trainer show
you how to do these properly.
Looking for those six pack
abs? Well if you are, you are
going to have to do more
than just a series of sit ups.
Research has shown that it
isn't possible to spot reduce.
So while exercises like crunch-
es may tone your abdominal
muscles, it doesn't mean
you're necessarily losing a lot
of fat from your abdominal
area. This will require a

-~ (F


change in your diet.
Reducing your midsection is
important, and not just from
a cosmetic perspective.
Research has shown that the
larger your mid-section, the
more likely you are to have a
heart attack, diabetes, and
some forms of cancer.
A Harvard Health Study
published in the American
Journal of Clinical Nutrition,
tracked over 27,000 men over
13 years and found that men's
risks increased once their
waist size went over 34 inch-
Compared to those with
waist sizes under 34 inches,
those with a 36-inch waist
had twice the risk, while those
greater than 40 inches had a
five-fold increased risk. Similar
studies have shown increases

risks in women with waist
sizes over 31 inches.

Once a year drug cuts
fracture risk

A recent study has shown
that once-a-year Reclast cuts
the risk of vertebral fractures
by 70 percent and hip frac-
tures by 40 percent compared
to those not taking any osteo-
porosis medications.
Reclast is given through a
15-minute infusion and was
-studied in more than 4,000
women whose average age
was 73.
Study investigator and
osteoporosis specialist Felicia
Cosman, MD of Columbia
University' noted that while
Reclast was not directly com-
pared to other osteoporosis
drugs, she did feel that this
was a better solution than
some others. It is so much: eas-
ier to take, noting that a
major problem with the most
commonly prescribed class of
osteoporosis drugs, the bis-
phosphonates, is that they
aren't easy to take properly.
They must be taken first thing
in the morning, on an empty
stomach, 30 minutes before
eating anything, and you are
supposed to remain standing
or sitting upright during this
half-hour fast.
Cosman further noted that
Reclast doesn't totally prevent
fractures. Over three years, 3.3

percent of women who topk
the drug had vertebral frac-
tures and 1.4 percent had hip
fractures, but that was far bet-
ter than the 10.9 percent rate
of vertebral fractures and the
2.5 percent rate of hip frac-
tures in the placebo group.
"We want to stress that in
between these infusions,
women still need to take their
calcium and vitamin D and
exercise and use all the
lifestyle measures that should
be done to reduce bone loss,"
Cosman warns. "This would
not take the place of that."

Fletcher High's Yoshida 'was one of us'

"Rarely has a nation been so
well served by a people it has so
ill-treated." President Bill
Clinton, June 21, 2001.

Kenjiro Yoshida was like a
lot of teenage American boys
in the-early 1940s.
He played sandlot football,
attended public high school
and was a Boy Scout.
When his country needed
him during World War II,
Yoshida, a native Floridian,
volunteered for the U.S.
Army at the age of 18.
The Jacksonville Beach resi-
dent was assigned to the
442nd Regimental Combat
Team, made up almost entire-
ly of Americans of Japanese
The segregated infantry
regiment was awarded more
medals for fighting in Europe
than any other American
unit of comparable size.
The 442 also suffered its
share of casualties, number-
ing more than 9,000.
Yoshida was one of them.

Brothers in arms

Born in Boca Raton and
raised for most of his life a
block away from the ocean in
Jacksonyille' Beach, \osh ida
was killed in action in Italy
onJulI 8. 1944.
He volunteered for military
service at a time when more
than 110,000 Japanese
Americans in the U.S. were
being rounded up like cattle
and relocated to prison
camps in Caltornia and.

affirmed his citizenship as a
full-blooded American.
"They did more than
defend America; in the face
of painful prejudice, they
helped to define America at
its best," said President Bill
Clinton about Japanese-
American veterans during a
Medal of Honor ceremony on
the South Lawn of the White
House in June 2001.
Yoshida died in the
Tuscany region of war-torn
northern Italy. He had been
in combat only 12 days.
Upon his death, his moth-
er, Katsu "Jean" Yoshida,
joined a legion of American
women known as Gold Star
Mothers whose sons were
killed overseas.
Jean Yoshida's oldest child,
Jun, also served in the Army
with the 442, but he was
training stateside when his
younger brother was killed.
Jun Yoshida, a Purple Heart
recipient during the war,

returned home safety and
spent another 20 years in the
Air Folce, retiring in 1964 as
a tech sergeant.
He married briefly, but had
no children, and died of a
heart attack at age 51 while
fishing in Florida.
The Yoshida family name
died with him.

Relocation camps

Ken and Jun's parents, who
had migrated to the U.S. in
the early 1900s, where treat-
ed better than most Japanese
nationals following the sneak
attack on Pearl Harbor in
Jean of Aomori, Japan, and
her husband, Gengoro, of
Morioka, were not relocated
to internment camps on the
West Coast in 1942 as some
of their blood relatives were.
After their sons joined the
Army, the couple moved to
St. Cloud, Fla., to care for
Jean's father, Yosokuchi
Jean's sister, Ren
Ogasawara, and her two
daughters, Francis and
Nancy, were not as fortunate.
The Ogasawaras were
removed from their San
Francisco home and interned
for two years at the sprawl-
ing, 15,000-acre Gila River
Relocation Camp in southern
Francis was 16 at the time,
Nancy only 12. Their mother,
a Presbyterian missionary
who taught kindergarten and
English to Japanese immi-
grants in San Francisco, died

BRASS sponsors JSO concert

For those who have
attended past Memorial
weekend symphony concerts
at TPC at Sawgrass, a word
of advice for Saturday's sixth
annual event: leave Dom
Perignon at home.
For the first time this year,
any liquid spirits on the
concert grounds will have to
be purchased at the concert,
according to Clarissa
Chandler, president of the
sponsoring organization.
Beer, wine and sodas will
be available for purchase.
For past concerts, "we
actually massaged a gray
area" by allowing guests to
bring their own alcoholic
drinks, said Chandler, with
Beaches Residents Actively
Supporting the Symphony
Saturday's concert, which
is free, begins at 7 p.m. out-
side the new 73,000-square-
foot TPC clubhouse that
opened this month after just

over a year of construction.
The symphony will set up
shop in the area behind the
clubhouse used for the
Island Club during The
Players championship,
Chandler said.
Guests can sit on the ter-
raced grassy area behind the
clubhouse, or on grassy
knolls on the back side of
the 18th green, or other
"places to drape," she said.
The rule forbidding alco-
hol from being brought in
relates to the club's liquor
license and the proximity of
the event to the clubhouse,
Chandler said.
"There probably will be
people scanning picnic bas-
kets," she said. Food,
chairs, blankets and coolers
are allowed.
As the audience at the
annual event has grown
over the past five years, so
has the array of accou-
trements guests bring with
It is not unusual to see
tables with tablecloths

topped by containers of
food, bottles of wine, wine
glasses and candles.
The setting could be for
two or for a crowd.'
"It's the kind of concert
that has amassed more audi-
ence every year," Chandler
said. "So I imagine it will
hold steady at 2,000 [guests]
plus" this year, she said.
The new clubhouse may
be an attraction as well, she
One favorite highlight of
the annual concert, with
Fabio Machetti conducting,
is a performance of "Armed
Forces Salute," when the
symphony plays the theme
song for each military serv-
ice branch.
Veterans and active duty
personnel typically stand
during the playing of their
appropriate theme songs.
Also on Saturday's pro-
gram are a cluster of Duke
Ellington tunes, songs from
Dave Brubeck, a George M.
Cohan salute and the 1812

Yoshida: Killed in action after 12 days in combat

Cont. from B-1
Arizona," Francis Ogasawara,
now 80, recalled in a phone
interview from her Asheville,
N.C., home.
"I never met Ken or Jun.
They were our East Coast rela-
tives. In those days, you did-
n't make long-distance calls."
"Francis and I left the camp
in 1944 and moved to New
York to live with an aunt,"
added 76-year-old Nancy
Ogasawara Duffy of Virginia
Beach, Va..
"Kenjiro was the first of our
cousins to pass. I didn't know
him at all, but I knew Jun
quite well because he came to
visit me in high school after'
the war."
Duffy has a pair of Kenjiro's
dog tags and his Purple Heart.
She also has a laundry bill for

'He was one of us'
Kenjiro Yoshida volunteered
for the Army right out of
Fletcher High School.
Classmates remember him
as a good athlete and student,
as American as baseball and
apple pie.
"There were four boys he
chummed around with:
myself, Bo Brantley, Red
Gates, arid'S6&'Per'Diiksoi,"'
Fred Ahern of Ponte Vedra
Beach recalled.
"We were all in Boy Scout
Troop 40 together. Ken was
extremely agile and very
quick. When we were on the
boardwalk, sailors would rec-
ognize that he was Japanese
and try to pick on him.
"We all stood up for
Kenjiro. He was one of us."
Dwight Wilson, a former
curator for the Beaches
Historical Society, bought his
first bike from Yoshida in
Wilson's father was princi-
pal of Jacksonville Beach
Elementary. School when
Yoshida was a student there in
the 1930s.
"My father cried when he
heard that Kenjiro had died,"
said Wilson, adding that the
Yoshida family lived in an
apartment above a liquor
store on Pablo Avenue, across
from the present-day City
By the time Kenjiro enlist-
ed, his brother, 18 months his
senior, was stationed in Camp
Shelby, Miss., where second-
generation Japanese
Americans trained before
going overseas.
After completing basic com-
bat training at Camp
Blanding, 30 miles south of
Jacksonville, Pvt. Kenjiro
Yoshida was assigned to
Company L of the 3rd
Battalion, 442nd Regimental
Combat Team.
Yoshida's first cousin,
Wesley Narita, served in the
442's regimental band.
The Japanese-American regi-
ment, whose motto was "Go
For Broke," sailed for Italy in
May 1944, landing at the
bombed-out harbor of Naples
in early June.
The unit's distinctive shoul-
der patch, a hand holding the
torch of liberty against a blue
crest surrounded by red and
white stripes, signified a spirit
of union among the troops.
"Volunteering was their
first, and would be their most
significant, political act,"
writes Robert Asahina in his
2006 book, "Just Americans."
"It expressed something
more basic than ethnic or cul-
tural identity or patriotism. It
declared not what made them
different from other
Americans but what they had
in common with them."

Pvt. Kenjiro Yoshida was ini-
tially buried in an Army ceme-
tery in Italy.

On his 1942 passport,
Gengoro Yoshida, then 57,
marked "36" on the line list-
ing the number of years he
had resided in the United
A farmer from the castle
region of northern Japan, the
edler Yoshida had come to
America at age 21, recruited to
work and settle in a Japanese
farming colony in West Palm
Yamato Farms, which broke
ground in 1905 in what is
now Boca Raton, raised
pineapples and later winter
vegetables, according to an
exhibit of Japanese pioneers
in Florida at the Morikami
Museum in Delray Beach.
"Few of-the 'settlers
remained *at Yainatov'ery long,
but those who did sometimes
returned to Japan briefly to
marry and bring wives to the
colony," the museum's web-
site says.
Gengoro and Jean Yoshida's
sons were born at a hospital
near the colony in 1923 and
On Kenjiro's birth certifi-
cate, Gengoro, then 40, lists
his occupation as farmer and
place of residence as Yamato,
Yamato Farms was located
between Boca Raton and
Delray Beach on land leased
from industrialist Henry
Flagler. The colony was a stop
on Flagler's East Coast
Sometime in the 1930s, the
Yoshidas moved north to
Jacksonville Beach, where at
least one other Japanese fami-
ly resided.
At the onset of World War
II, only three Japanese fami-
lies remained at Yamato. In
1942, the land was confiscat-
ed by the government and
converted into an Army Air
Corps training center.

Baptism of fire

On June 10, 1944, the 442
joined up with its brother bat-
talion, the 100th, at a coastal

town 40 miles northwest of
Rome. .
The 100th had already
made a name for itself in
combat, having fought in
North Africa in 1943, and in
Italy in early 1944 at the bat-
tle of Monte Cassino and dur-
ing the invasion of Anzio.
The newly arrived second
and third battalions were
green, but anxious to prove
their mettle.
Their baptism of fire came
on June 26, 1944.
According to a unit history
of the 442 by the California-
based Go For Broke National
Education Center, Yoshida's L
Company was "pinned down
for most of the day" by small-
arms fire outside the town of
Belvedere, north of Rome.
The 100th eventually seized
the town from- the Germans,
destroying an entire SS
Battalion. For its efforts, the
100th was awarded a
Presidential Unit Citation.
In early July, the 442 chased
the retreating Germans up the
boot of Italy, crossing "rolling
hills and already-harvested
wheat fields," the unit history
During the decisive, three-
day battle for Hill 140, six
men in L Company were
wiped out from a single
German artillery shell.
The 442 took Hill 140 on
July 7, 1944. From the ridge
line, Yoshida's company may,
have caught a glimpse of the
coastal plain'to the west.
The view may have remind-
ed Yoshida of his seaside,
home in Jacksonville Beach,
where he lived a stone's throw
from the boardwalk.
The following day, Yoshida
and another private in L
Company, Mitso Furuuchi,

were killed in battle, likely
near the village of Castellina.
Mt. Peace Cemetery
Jun Yoshida was at Camp
Shelby when he was notified
of his brother's death. He had
stayed behind with the 442's
1st Battalion to help train the
next round of replacement
soldiers, whom he would
accompany to Europe in
November 1944.
His brother's remains were
initially interned in an Army
cemetery in Italy. A white
wooden cross with a dog tag
nailed to it marked the grave.
After the war, Yoshida's
remains were reburied in a
family plot in St. Cloud, with
full military honors.
In August 1944, American
Legion Post 80 of St. Cloud
presented Jean Yoshida with a
Gold Star Citation, saluting
Kenjiro's "devotion to the
highest duty of citizenship."
Jean Yoshida joined Post
80's women's auxiliary in
1950, and the women's auxil-
iary of VFW Post 3227 in
Osceola in 1962. She also was
a member of the Central
Florida chapter of the
American Gold Star Mothers
She died in' 1967 at the age
of 73. She and her husband,
Gengoro, who lived to be 93,
and their sons, are buried at
Mt. Peace Cemetery in St. ':1
Cloud. m r b
Governmeniit-issued marble
headsones, a death benefit
accorded all U.S. veterans,
mark the final resting places
of Kenjiro and Jun Yoshida.
"Every year, we go there
and put flowers on their
graves," Nancy Ogasawara
Duffy said.

T o be a truly successful
artist, one must develop
a trademark, a recogniza-
ble pattern, design or idea that
is recognizable as a Picasso,
Mondrian or Klee, for exam-
Enrique Mora has accom-
plished this, as evidenced in
his new exhibit, which
opened May 18 at Stellers
Annex in Neptune Beach.
Of the more than 30 paint-
ings included in the exhibit,
all but two are paintings of
the human head. Two full fig-
ure paintings covered with
flowing robes are the only
full-sized figures.
The heads are designs more
than heads, each with a differ-
ent shape, color and back-
ground. Half of the heads
looked as though paint was
squeezed out of the tube onto
the canvas in a flowing line.
Colors are bright, back-
grounds both smooth and
geometrical, resulting in color-
ful works of art. Four of the
works were actually working
clocks, the hands of which
could be seen only upon close

Weekend 4

Capt. Jack Sparrow (Johnny Depp) has reclaimed his ship, the Black Pearl, in the third installment of "Pirates of the Caribbean: At

Capt. Jack Sparrow (Johnny Depp) has reclaimed his ship, the Black Pearl, in the third installment of "Pirates of the Caribbean: At
World's End." The PG-13 film. opened Thursday.

Third installment of 'Shrek' miles ahead of the second

"Shrek the Third" fits about
midway between the previous
two entries not as original and
endearing as the 2001 original,
but miles ahead of the lack-
adaisical "Shrek 2."
The movie meanders for
quite a while, for at least
a couple of reasons. The
first 20 minutes or so goes out
of its way to establish the
happy domestic bliss of this
once-hermitic ogre (voiced
again by Mike Myers). He
adores his wife Fiona
,,Ca eron Diiaz), and he now
Tersttoils tfor[merly combat-
ic kingl' 'fafier-in-la "
(Monty Python's John Cleese)
as "Dad." The movie seems to
stop just short of giving Shrek
a briefcase, a compact car,
and a suburban home.
Then the movie shoehorns
in every subplot it can imag-
ine. Dad is dying, and Shrek is
reluctant to assume the
throne, so he must go on a
search for Fiona,s cousin and
the only rightful heir some
punky kid named Arthur
(Justin Timberlake).
Meanwhile, the vain Prince
Charming (Rupert Everett),
who wore out his welcome to
start with in "Shrek 2," still
thinks he deserves to be, king,
and he rounds up some icon-
ic fairy-tale villains to help
him. (Fiona counters this
move by turning Cinderella
and her ilk into, literally, bra-

ing, even though it's far more
inevitable than it was in
"Shrek 1." Part of the
inevitability comes from the
announcement that "Shrek 4"
is already being planned for a
2010 release. It will be a
happy ending indeed when
Mike Myers again appears in a
movie comedy that isn't
based on a children's book

burning feminits.TV `
Thus, the movie's fiistJilf-.
hour is like a stand-up comic
who does every desperate
move he can think of to keep
you from heading for the exit.
But once the movie slows
down and starts dealing with
- the implications of its myriad
plot threads, it gets at least a
hint of the whimsicality that
"Shrek 1" delivered so effort-
lessly. The movie actually gets
better as it gets thick on
shtick; the fairy-tale heroines
are all played by "Saturday
Night ,Live" veterans, and
another Python alumnus, Eric
Idle, contributes some nice
laughs with his interpretation
of magician Merlin as a New
Age self-help guru.
By the time the finale rolls
around, you'll find that you
have a vested interest in the
movie's potential happy end-

and doesn't have a number at
the end of its title.
(Note: If you long to revisit
Shrek's origins, Jacksonville's
San Marco Theatre will run
"Shrek 1" at midnight
tonight. Go online to sanmar-
cotheatre.com, or call 396-
"Shrek 3" is rated PG for
mildly vulgar humor.

Anna Nicole Smith's 'Illegal Aliens' already a cult classic

To no one's surprise, science
has proven that attractive peo-
ple, male or female, are better
adjusted and make more money
than less attractive but harder-
working peers. The reason:
facial symmetry, a feature that
seems to scream, "I'm more
capable than others!" This, in a
nutshell, at least, partially
explains Anna Nicole Smith's
outrageous pop culture success -
and undoubtedly contributed
to her death at 39. Her last
movie "Illegal Aliens" was
completed just weeks before her
demise. To her fans, it's already
a cult classic!
"Illegal Aliens" is an R-rated
spoof of low-budget sci-fi flicks.
It opens with a shot of Earth
from space and Anna Nicole's
starship. It's slathered with rib-
ald bumper stickers, none of
which can be detailed in famfilly
newspapers. Supporting Anna
Nicole are Joanie Laurer
(wrestling's "Chyna," the flick,

"Surreal Life"), Lenise Soren
("Eve," "Nightmare") and
Gladise Jimenez (TV's "The Bold
and the Beautiful") playing cos-
mic cops. The world's about to
be invaded by evil forces, and as
shape shifters, they're equipped
for disaster. Of course, they
"work" in scanty clothes, a nod
to the fact they somehow realize
"really hot chicks have it easy."
They're guided by a galactic
mentor from a hologram. He
obliquely suggests a perfect
cover would be movie stunt
women ... a segue into fires,
explosions, car chases and
everything you'd expect in an
action flick.
Watch the movie carefully,
and you'll be rewarded: The
aliens' TV, for example, is tuned
to "The Anna Nicole Show."
Writer Ben Coello, who's
worked as everything from an
actor to a grip, takes shots at
"Charlieis Angels," "Men in
Black" and numerous other sci-
fi adventures. It's all in fun and,
surprisingly, director David
Giancola ("Moving Targets")

.manages to wring decent per-
formances from the thespians.
Anna Nicole, whose lifetime
idol was Marilyn Monroe, steals
most scenes. The former
Playboy model and stripper,
born Vickie Hogan, giggles and
smiles in her adorable baby doll
voice. Occasionally, she peers
straight at the camera and
makes lewd comments such as,
"Who do I have to [blank] to get
out of this movie?" It isn't for
This $20 flick (view the trailer
at www.edgewoodstudios.com)
is perfect for home TV. As the
movie closes, there are bloopers
and outtakes, one of which
could have been the flick's fun-
niest scene. There are also inter-
views and extras.
Despite the above, the flick
imparts sadness. Anna Nicole's
chaotic life, the death of her son
just before filming and her own
demise from drugs and a raging
infection makes one pause. Her
biography the 88-year-old she
married, a baby bornm almost
simultaneously with her older

son's death and much more are
cautionary. You'll soon forget
"Illegal Aliens," but Anna
Nicole's success, a ninth-grade
dropout, won't be as easily for-

Hurricane season begins June 1: Do you know where pet-friendly shelters are?
With an active hurricane season predicted, pet.owners have extra steps in planning and preparing for
an evacuation or loss of power and mobility during a storm.
*In St. Johns County, pets are forbidden at public shelters.
*In Duval County, three public shelters will allow most pets with their owners. They are Landmark and.
Mandarin middle schools and Chimney Lakes Elementary.
Preregistration is suggested.
*Visit www.coj.net/Departments/Fire+and+Rescue/Emergency+Preparedness to download guidelines
and a registration form.
In both counties, service animals can enter public shelters.
At least four Web sites list pet-friendly hotels and motels. They are 1-Click Pet Friendly Hotels and
Resorts; InterPet Explorer; Pets on the Go! and petswelcome.com.
For suggestions on preparing your pets before a disaster strikes, visit St. Johns County Emergency
Management Web site (www.sjcemergencymanagement.org). Click on "site map" in the top menu
and look for Pet/Animal Safety.

Rosado, rosato or rose

- let's just call it 'good'

In Spain, they call it rosado.
In Italy, they call it rosato.
In France, they call it rose.
And hereabouts? Let's just call
it good.
For years we have been
pleading with consumers to set
aside all of their prejudices
about this pink wine and enjoy
one of the best. summer quaf-
fers in the market.
Apparently, we're having
some success because sales of
rose have enjoyed a nice jolt in
recent years. Consumers are
finding out what those who
live in southern France have
known for centuries: A dry rose
is a hospitable drink for warm
weather and even a nice match
to simple foods. With summer
just 'round the bend, rose is
the best value on the market to
cool you off..
There are few wines as versa-
tile as rose and that is some-
thing until just now that has
eluded wine enthusiasts.
Unfortunately, many people
confuse it with the scourge of
the industry white zinfandel
- and assume it is sweet. Even
though many California roses
have a dose of residual sugar to
appeal to the Coca-Cola palate
in us, these wines are a far cry
from the syrupy blush wines
made famous by Sutter Home.
Roses can be made from
almost any red grape variety,
but in our humble opinion are
made best from grenache,
syrah and cinsault the clas-
sic style of southern France
where rose is as ubiquitous as a
French vacationer in August.
There are two ways to get
the color in the wine, but the
most popular is the saignee
method. In short, juice is bled
off fermenting tanks after a
short exposure to red grape
skins. The siphoned pink wine
becomes rose and what's left is
more concentrated red wine.
The color ranges from salmon
to bright raspberry.
The other method of produc-
ing rose, used more often to
make rose champagne,
involves blending red and
white wines.
Fermentation takes place is
stainless steel tanks to keep the
wine fresh and clean. Exposing
the wine to oak would just
defeat the role rose plays as a
simple wine with crisp, mouth-
cleansing acidity.

'The Wine Guys'
Roses are terrific versatility.
There is no better wine to
bring on a picnic or the boat.
As a sipper, it offers refreshing
qualities to serve to arriving
guests. As a food wine, it has
the acidity to go with grilled
foods, cheese, vegetable dips,
Asian fare, fish, salmon, pork
almost anything, but beef
and lamb.
Roses are finally appearing
more often in restaurants, indi-
cating that restaurateurs are
finally recognizing their
We have plowed through
nearly 20 roses in the past sev-
eral weeks. We continue to like
the French wines because of
their austerity and balance. Just
look at these values from here
and abroad:
Chateau Grande Cassagne
Rose 2006 ($10). Bright rasp-
berry and strawberry flavors
abound in this overly fruity
rose from southern France. It
has been a standard summer
wine for us for several years
now. Blend of grenache, syrah
and mourvedre.
Domaine Gourier 2006
($10). Using grenache, syrah
and cinsault grapes, this wine
from southern France has cher-
ry and strawberry flavors with
a touch of spice and everything
Mas de Guiot 2006 ($10).
From the Costieres de Nimes
region, this blend of syrah and
grenache has good cherry and
raspberry flavors. Blend
includes caberet sauvignon,
Sgrenache, syrah and mourve-
Mas Carlot 2006 ($10). A
beautiful, dry blend of
grenache, syrah and cabemet

sauvignon, it has complexity
and good acidity. Red berry fla-
vors, cranberries and spice.
Toad Hollow Eye of the
Toad Rose 2006 ($12). Made
from pinot noir grapes, this
perennial favorite'of ours
sprouts an elegant style with
strawberry, spice flavors and a
pretty, floral nose.
Zaca Mesa Z Gris 2006
($15). Grenache and cinsault
make up this wonderful Santa
Barbara wine that we just
loved. Lots of bright berry fla-
vors, good acidity and a long,
intense finish.
El Coto Rioja Rosado 2005
($11). One of the best from
Spain, this rose is an even
blend of grenache and tem-
pranillo. Flowerly, lavender
bouquet with intense berry
fruit and nice finish.
I'm Rose 2006 ($12). The
name stands for Isabel
Mondavi who pleaded with her
winemaking son; Rob, to make
a wine she could serve to er
friends over a light lunch.
Made from cabemet sauvignon
grapes grown on young Napa
Valley vines, this rose sports
big berry flavors and a long fin-
ish. The cabernet gives it good
mouthfeel and a bit of tannin.

Create a family gathering space

E' -

you with this process.
We know this might seem
contrary to what we've been
A- discussing so far, but you want
4 to keep your new family room
S7 as nice as possible for as long as
possible. Lay some basic ground
rules for cleanup and mainte-
nance but don't make them too
strict or your family will never
use the room. For example, if
one of your rules is not to eat
on the furniture because you
have a favorite couch, then
don't place that couch in this
MR and We wish you luck with your

Dear Jane,
I recently got divorced and
am trying to create a home for
my two teenage sons. As they
get older, I am worried that we
will drift apart. I wish I had a
space where the three of us
could gather together to share
activities. My new house is
much smaller than the one we
shared with my ex-husband. It
has a small den but it is dark
and not at all cozy. Do you
have any suggestions as to how
I can transform this space into
something warm and inviting
for me and my kids?
Thanks for your time,
Betsy L.

Dear Betsy,
Life transitions are always
challenging but we believe that
change is a good and positive
force in life. We think you are
on the right track in trying to
create a family gathering space
and we have some suggestions
to make the place more family-
The key is to design the room
around what your family likes
to do. For example, if you
enjoy watching movies, then
install a home theatre system.
If you like to do puzzles or play
games, invest in a big table
with comfortable chairs. If you
are a family with varying inter-
ests, assign each member a por-
tion of the room.
Creating a homey family
room doesn't necessarily mean
gutting the entire thing and
starting over. Work with what
you have. A fresh coat of paint
or a rearrangement of furniture
and new slipcovers may be all
you need. Browse magazines
and catalogs to see what styles
appeal to your family and what
would work in your home.
A major component of redo-
ing any room is organizing
your belongings. Is your space
cluttered with unused books,
toys or other junk? Eliminate
whatever you can donate, sell,
or throw away. Visit a home
organizing store to get ideas
about storage. There are now
many options for mounting
shelves, entertainment centers,
and even furniture that doubles
as storage. Making space for
everything will make the room
look bigger.
When you have decided on
what you want to do, create a
budget and stick to it. Scour
for inexpensive decor and fur-
niture that can be made fabu-
lous with a little rehabbing.

rooms and
using chrome in the bath-
room again can create just-th
right statement for your bath

Selecting finishes
Choosing the right fixture
for your bathroom usually
starts with finding the finish
that's right for your home.
The starting point at selecting
a finish is with the style of the
fixture, whether that's con-
temporary or traditional. If
you have an old-fashioned
claw foot tub, you'd want to
select a finish that looks
appropriate for a vintage-style
bath. Accessories are another
guiding element in selecting
finish. If the lighting and
towel bars are brushed nickel,
then brushed nickel fixtures
make sense. But when it
comes to plated chrome fin-
ishes, some bathroom styles.
are natural choices for shiny

Design drivers
Bright and shiny finishes
are becoming the finish of
choice since the introduction
of the spa bath. These bath-
rooms have the feel and
appeal of a spa and b lightly
polished fixtures lool terrific
here. Likewise, polished fix-


tures look

rooms and art

S\ bathrooms also
are comple-

chrome fixtures
have an ageless
appeal and this
could be the
I WEBER driving factor
LUMNIST in its resur-
gence in popu-
larity. It's also
less expensive
than bronze, brass, or nickel
fixtures. I.think there might
be another reason, too:-It's -
clean-looking. More and more
people are looking for that
clean feeling in their baths.
What's the drawback to
gleaming chrome fixtures?
The reason for the appeal -
Polished chrome is a beauti-
ful finish but it does require
the extra step in cleaning.and
that's the step many home-
owners neglect but that five
star hotels get right.

Final cleaning step
I'd always wondered what it
is about a hotel kind of clean
that's so appealing and why a
hotel often looks so sparkling
clean as opposed to a typical
home. The first thing that
came to mind is that hotels
know all about cleaning.
Unlike most homeowners,
cleaning is what hotels do
every single day. Besides the
usual making of beds, vacu-
uming, scrubbing, and dust-
ing, there's one final thing
that hotels do that most
homeowners don't think
about and that's polishing.
Yes, polishing is the often
overlooked "final act" in
cleaning. For instance, a tub

becoming popular again after years of matte finishes. Sparkling chrome is a great choice in period baths, spa baths, and contem-
porary designs.

faucet might be scrubbed with
cleaner, then rinsed, and then
forgotten during the typical .
home-style cleaning. However,
a hotel maid would take the
final step and wipe the faucet
off with a soft, dry cloth and
polish it to make it spot-free.
If you have polished chrome

fixtures, this small extra step
is all you need to keep your
chrome looking good and
make the finish last longer -
and make the whole bath-
room look and feel cleaner.
My cleaning cloth of choice
for this is microfiber because
of its polishing ability and

because it can take dried splat-
ters, like toothpaste, off easily.
Polished chrome fixtures are
beautiful, and with new fin-
ishes and wonderful
microfiber cleaning cloths,
keeping those fixtures gleam-
ing might not be as difficult
as it once was.
